This afternoon the Colorado Water Conservation Board released their annual new years report on water in the Centennial State, which included a shoutout to a Colorado business that is reimagining the toilet. Or the sink. Or both.
But before we get you to that sweet, sweet innovation, some numbers for you:
155 percent: That’s how we’re quantifying how much more than average the Colorado snow pack is bulging as of last week. That’s great news since inter-state politics are being tested as we try to share the Colorado River with six other states.
$22,978,257: That’s how much cash has been appropriated to date since the 2013 floods. Yes, we’re still dealing with the aftermath of that “1000-year” event.
240: How many days until the Conservation Board actually observes a new year. Apparently water people in Colorado are on their own schedule, a period that “is directly correlated with the state’s water storage” and begins on October 1st when the snow pack begins to accumulate.
4,380,000: How many gallons of water Sink Twice, the faucet-toilet combo, says they save with just 1,000 units annually. The Colorado-based company was honored by the Conservation Board’s “Innovation Highlight.” And why the heck wouldn’t they?
